It's not what you'd expect
This is absolutely terrifying.
Outmaneuvered is polite for meet the new FOX Latina brand. There are low information voters of all languages and ethnicities. Fascism couldn’t exist without low information voters. I’m hopeful that we will all vote and bring friends to vote defending democracy one vote at a time. We are in this together.
And I understand there are hundreds if not more, Spanish speaking radio stations across the country that have been taken over by right wing propagandists. Also terrifying. We have much work ahead of us.
You have to be impressed. And terrified. He calls Mexicans rapists and thieves and that their government is letting terrorists though the border, cages Hispanic children and wants to deport even legal aliens (birthright). Trump goes to Puerto Rico in the aftermath of Hurricane Maria, throws paper towels and gets chided by their Governor for not supplying aid. Trump gets Cuban votes, because they somehow think Biden is Socialist and it reminds them of Castro, not the strongman-to-be Trump. He goes after Venezuelans who want asylum after blaming their country for fake voting in the US. And with all that, like Ted Cruz did after Trump severely denigrated Cruz’s family during the election, they’re coming on bended knee to pledge fealty. Trump DESPISES Hispanics, almost as much as Blacks. How is any amount of money worth what Univision is doing?
This is the most depressing thing I’ve read today.
The buddy in the inside is hard to beat.
Perhaps some money or other considerations are also involved.
Promises to buy ads later or business loans maybe.
Thanks for bringing this to our attention, Joyce. It is indeed alarming.
No one has out maneuvered the Democrats. People all over the world know Trump is a liar and more and more people are moving on from his nonsense. Only in America does the news come with so much commentary. People are smarter than our news media gives them credit for.
I am an activist here in Orange County, CA. I ask for Hispanic turfs when I canvass. In my own door knocking, I have learned that this minority group was largely ignored until 2016. They don’t watch Fox or CNN so they’re very uninformed as to political points. The turnout here was the 2nd lowest of all groups, like around 20% in the mid-term general. A little higher in a Presidential. There are more Democrats than Republicans even here, but they don’t vote true to Party when they do vote.
A very in-play congressional district (CA45) has a large Hispanic group and had voted Dem in 2016 and 2018. When we lost it in 2020, I researched FEC spending by the Republican candidate. I was expecting to find spending on Telemundo and Spanish publications. I did find a little. More importantly, that candidate (Michelle Steel) had spent $1.2M on a company called Targeted Victory.
Targeted Victory does those little 1” ads everywhere you go on your phone. It doesn’t have to be true. “Democrats are Communists” “Democrats abort full term babies”. Then I saw an article where Dems are losing Hispanic voted nationwide. Florida and Texas included. So I reseated Targeted Victory nationwide. Sure enough, in 2020, Republicans spent $120M nationwide. It’s very concerning.
I also know the younger generations are more informed and not as easy to pick up that way. I observe them helping with the discussion when I canvass and commonly more liberal and better informed.
Two more points: a lot of them do not think additional Hispanics should come ILLEGALLY. That’s why when Republicans call them all illegal, it really matters. Those seeking asylum legally are not. We must educate them. Another issue: the first (and some of the 2nd) generations are not pro-choice. Especially in Texas. They are Catholic. I don’t talk about those issues when I canvass. I talk about helping people: jobs, health benefits, educational opportunities. But the younger ones are very similar to other Democrats.
Where are the Democrats?? What are they waiting for?? This is an ‘all hands on deck’ crisis of democracy!
They say Trump is not stupid, he is ignorant and lazy. But he is cunning and I fear we do not fear the GOP enough.
What is the appeals court pissing around with the gag order for?
They are 100% complicit in supporting trumps destruction of this country.
They obviously are too arrogant and not smart enough to know he will put most of them in jail and ignore the that of a King - specifically MBS.
Oh, don’t believe me. Just research what Putin does and what MBS has done. MBS just hangs them. Michael Cohen said Trump will model his behavior as that of MBS. Also listen to James Comey describe to Jen Psaki what Trump will do to the DOJ and anyone who has crossed him,
Some hacker should do something to the Univision signal during the interview's scheduled time.
You didn't mention the fact that the Mexican owner of Televisa is a far right conservative who was instrumental in making the last conservative president of Mexico. So Kushner didn't have to make much of an argument since it was a meeting of "birds of a feather flocking together." We have to understand that our domestic enemy is well-connected to the international fascist movement.
I feel compelled to write a second comment. When I was still working, I attended a presentation about immigration impacts, issues, and options; it was a learning session and was not meant to do anything other than educate. It was put on by HR and many of the presenters were fellow employees. The biggest takeaway for me was the animosity of many naturalized citizens present towards those who try to avoid the legal process to enter and remain in the country. I expected some sympathy and/or empathy; there was none. Surprised me.
Bad yes. Just remember we have been winning even in red districts. Getting our side to the polls is the deal.
